Record Kicks proudly pres. The most buzzed-about Soul singer in Toronto (CBC Music) Tanika Charles. Soul Runproduced by Slakah The Beatchild (BBE records) - best known for his works with Canadian rapper Drake, is Tanika's new single and anticipates the self titled debut album that will be released on Record Kicks on April the 7th.
In a few short years, Tanika Charles has transformed from an emerging solo artist to a commanding performer and bandleader, a staple in the Canadian soul scene, both on stage and off. Edmonton raised Charles presents an immutable charm, at times endearingly abrasive and honest in her vulnerabilities. If Tanika's singing it, she's lived it!
Her touring career has seen her supporting the likes of Estelle, Mayer Hawthorne, Haitus Kayote, Lauryn Hill, Bendouin Soundclash and Macy Gray. Highly impressive, considering she is only just releasing her debut album to the world.
